This is a curiosity question.

Some time ago, late Grothendieck's manuscripts have been uploaded, with consent from Grothendieck's family, for the community to consult.

They can be found here, following a link on the IHES webpage dedicated to Grothendieck (https://www.ihes.fr/en/tag/grothendieck/)


Has anybody read through some part of them, and found anything interesting so far?

    $\begingroup$ I have to confess that I tried to look at some of the material, and I found it unreadable. $\endgroup$ – Francesco Polizzi Oct 6 '17 at 18:40

    $\begingroup$ What's funny? The OP asked a totally sensible question, with a somewhat historical flavor. $\endgroup$ – user95222 Oct 8 '17 at 2:08

    $\begingroup$ I'm aware of interesting mathematics in Récoltes et Semailles. See also here, Minhyong Kim's answer: mathoverflow.net/questions/48622/… $\endgroup$ – user92332 Oct 8 '17 at 2:11
